Join us in Lesvos. Enjoy Greece and see our work.
Due to its location, Lesvos has become the epicenter for refugee migration to Europe, with over one million people passing through the island since 2014.
Lesvos is a large Greek island in the northern Aegean Sea, just off the coast of Turkey. Ancient olive trees and stone home villages dot the rolling hills that make up the landscape.
Locals are always amongst friends and family, sipping Greek frappe's in the morning and laughing over Ouzo in the evening. True to its' Greek roots, conversations often revolve around philosophy and politics.
"Traveling to Lesvos with WWBT was one of the best experiences of my life. The WWBT center is bringing hope and joy to women and children in the most desperate circumstances, and the opportunity to support is true magic. We enjoyed stunning accommodations, fun sightseeing and delicious food, and left the trip with lifelong friends. Can’t wait to return!"
"After visiting Lesvos with When We Band Together I'll never think about the refugee crisis the same way again and I'll never forget the beautiful resilient human beings that I met there who the world has forgotten. The people I traveled with will be lifelong friends and lifelong allies in the fight for those we left behind."
"Traveling to Lesvos with WWBT gave me an experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. The schedule is thoughtful, meaningful, educational and also fun! Every detail is intentionally crafted and taken care of so I didn't have to stress about a thing. I learned so much and left feeling more connected, inspired, and energized."
